"I am really enjoying your classes. I enjoy painting the flowers and the format is perfect for me as it gives me lots of time to work on the paintings. The interactive online sessions are fantastic!" Lynn

WOW!!! You are such a real professional!!! I love how you are instructing...quiet, confident voice, SAYING exactly what you are doing and why, SHOWING exactly what you are doing and why, USING the reference photo as a guide and REFERRING to the practice sample as a reminder that "you can do it"!! And then GIVING the students time to put into practice what you've just taught with your comments and suggestions ready to help! WOW! a first class instructor" Cheryl Feragen

"Birgit is an excellent instructor who is organized, informative and thorough in her presentations. Also she is very supportive and helpful in her comments on the painting submissions. I felt strongly that she really wanted me to learn and improve and produce a painting that would make me feel that I had achieved a result that would be worthwhile. I would take another class from her in a heartbeat." Sincerely, Trish Kuncewicz

"I love the pace of your instruction, and the fact that you include the little details that are so important. It's really so helpful to me that you're making no assumptions about prior experience." Judy

"I love how you challenge your students to paint outside our comfort zones. I've incorporated all of it into my own paintings". Frances

Birgit! You are amazing master of painting enriching our minds, hearts and imagination with your art. Thank you, Zlatica Stauder

Birgit is an excellent instructor who is organized, informative and thorough in her presentations. Also she is very supportive and helpful in her comments on the painting submissions. I felt strongly that she really wanted me to learn and improve and produce a painting that would make me feel that I had achieved a result that would be worthwhile. I would take another class from her in a heartbeat. Sincerely, Trish Kuncewicz


I wanted you to know that I really appreciate your calm teaching voice. It was one of the main reasons I chose your class. You speak very thoughtfully, slowly, and clearly. While watching the videos, I picked up a lot of helpful instruction, before of working on the actual painting. Using the sweeping upstroke to avoid spreading at the end of the stroke, and softening the edges of lines with a larger brush both worked beautifully, much improving my first attempts! I'll be starting to paint the poppy tomorrow – so excited! Thanks in advance, Laurie

Hi Birgit. Wow!!!Looks great!!!You are tireless!!!! I love the video courses. Thank you for sharing your expertise with the rest of us. Mary Louise
